Why US govt says Men should limit alcohol to one drink a day?

According to a federal committee’s recommendations for new U.S. dietary guidelines, Men should consume no more than one alcoholic drink a day

It is said that alcohol consumption is increasing in the US. According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, alcohol consumption in the US has increased by eight per cent in the last 20 years

The advice is based on links that researchers observed between drinking habits and all causes of death, including heart disease, cancer and car accidents, rather than a specific physical harm that alcohol might have.

It is said that two drinks a day were associated with an increased risk of death compared with one drink a day.

According to Indian Express, alcohol consumption accounts for over 100,000 deaths per year in the US. Of all the alcohol-attributable deaths, over 88,000 are due to excessive drinking.

The guidelines are set to update every five years, and the updated guidelines are expected to be issued by the end of the year after being reviewed by The U.S. Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services.
